Service-Learning Proposal Description


Briefly describe the project and the community need to be addressed.

Answer You will assist in leading the middle school youth on Wednesday evenings during the school year. We need positive faith role models for the middle school students and assistance in helping the students feel encouraged in their faith, helping them be seen and known and having fun during the youth group time throughout the year. At the end of each Wednesday we will clean up together and talk about how the evening went and see what we can do better the next week.


What is the mission of the agency or organization?

Answer Inviting People Whom God Loves to Come And Follow Jesus With Us!


What skills are required for this project? 

Answer You will need to enjoy middle school students and have fun with them. You will need to work well with and be a good communicator with the leader and students. You will need to be able to share about yourself/faith and be able to initiate conversation with middle school students. You will need to be able to lead a small group of them for about 15 minutes most weeks and keep them on track during the small group time when you are in charge of the group. You will need to be able to find positive ways to keep middle school students on track during the large youth group time too. If you have experience assisting in leading or are open to learning how to lead youth in activities, this will also be helpful.


What are the objectives for the student learning and service?

Answer To grow in leadership of middle school students and to grow as a communicator with other adults and middle school students.


What are the availability requirements for the student?

Answer 5:45-7:15pm Wednesday evenings from September- April with some weeks off because of holidays and your winter break (you won't need to be here for your winter break). A free dinner for you will be included in this time while you eat with the students and get to know them and share positively with them. You will need to be able to get yourself here and home each week.


Additional information (not required).

Answer We are very excited to have positive faith role models to invest in our youth!! We will have fun together! You will get a free dinner with the students and leaders each week.
